WiredRed Inks Partnership Agreement with Roam Secure
add additional desktop features for secure, emergency alert notification to the
Roam Secure Alert Network
San Diego, California – August 12, 2003 –
WiredRed™, a worldwide technology leader in enterprise real-time communications
software, today announced that it has signed a partnership agreement with Roam
Secure, a company that builds, deploys and manages emergency communication
systems for customers in the federal, state and local government. According to
the agreement, Roam Secure will integrate WiredRed’s e/pop® Alert with its Roam
Secure Alert Network (RSAN), a full-suite two-way mobile emergency alert system
that currently supports a variety of handheld wireless devices such as mobile
phones, pagers, Blackberries and PDAs, as well as email.
e/pop Alert, a secure high-priority one-way instantaneous communications system
based on WiredRed’s Real-Time Routing Architecture, brings Roam Secure the
ability to notify thousands of recipients, via their desktop workstations, about
impending emergencies without concern that the messages will be blocked at LAN
segment boundaries, firewalls and proxies. Unlike alternative solutions, e/pop
Alert is proxy-friendly and supports multi-server installations. As such, it can
private-route throughout large complex network environments and successfully
traverse firewalls in multiple office locations, as well as NATs and proxies.
The integration of WiredRed’s e/pop Alert with Roam Secure’s RSAN will create a
superior “one click”, emergency communications solution capable of message
delivery across the enterprise to both desktop systems and mobile devices
Furthermore, e/pop Alert will enable RSAN messages to appear in a separate
window with priority message placement over other windows on the desktop. This
feature will help to ensure that each recipient is made aware of an alert
“We are very excited to join Roam Secure in order to expand its First Responder
capabilities,” said Allen Drennan, President and CEO of WiredRed. “This will be
an long-term partnership that allows us to team up to bring secure emergency
alert capabilities to a variety of industries such as cross-jurisdictional
government agencies, industrial safety organizations, nuclear power facilities
and military bases. Any company or organization that takes security seriously
can benefit from the integration of desktop and mobile emergency
According to David Drescher, Roam Secure’s Chief Operating Officer, the
partnership with WiredRed is highly synergistic and will enhance the full-suite,
desktop-to-mobile platform support now provided by RSAN.
“We chose WiredRed’s e/pop Alert because it’s a proven technology already used
at many federal agencies for emergency communication purposes,” he explained.
“The partnership will enhance our current product offerings and enable us to
service a broader market of companies and organizations that are committed to
providing a safer environment for their employees, contractors and customers.”
